Pale amber yellow in the big chalice. Modest foam but very carbonated. Aroma of candied fruit.

This does taste exactly like San Pelligrino orange soda. The label talks of "American Sour and multiple waves of citrus." Well, maybe, but there is nothing sour about it. Quite sweet. Really sweet with sugary fruit flavors. Tangy and fizzy. Just a faint beeriness.

It's a little strong for an orange soda, but quite drinkable. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the Metropolitan Market in Kirkland, WA.

Important note: After drinking this beer I discovered it had been recalled by 10 Barrel (viewable on their Facebook page) due to over carbonation.

A - Lemon-amber. Extreme head erupts out of the glass even with a mild pour!
S - Sweet, soft citrus
T - Sugary sweet. A little tart like Cook's champagne. Sprite, apple juice, candied white grapefruit. Some light yeasty / breadyness on the end. Not nearly as sour as expected but there is a faint lactic zing present.
M - Syrupy and fizzy. Very comparable to a sticky high fructose soda.
O - Light but not refreshing, fruity but tastes artificial. Too similar to Smirnoff Ice for me.
